As the Web Grows, Do Browser Makers Wield Too Much Power?

Things in the era of dematerialization

As we clear out the house in order to move west, we’re processing a vast accumulation of things. This morning I hauled another dozen boxes of books from the attic, nearly all of which we’ll donate to the library. Why did I haul them up there in the first place? We brought them from our […]

Your Editor should Encourage You

I love to code as much as the next developer. I even professed my love in a keynote once. And judging by the fact that you're reading this blog, I bet you love to code too. But in the immortal words of that philosopher, Pat Benatar, Love is a battlefield. There are times when writing code is drudgery. Show More Summary

Turning it off and on again

In The Internet of Things That Used To Work Better I whined about rebooting my stove. This morning I was stuck outside a hotel room waiting for “engineering” to come and reboot the door.

New Computer Blues

One of the worst things that can happen to a computer geek is their motherboard dying and I've lived through it more times than I can remember. In the past I usually replaced the motherboard or did a nice little upgrade, but this time I did something I haven't done in 16 years. Show More Summary

Everything is amazing and I am grateful

Last night I hung out with friends who hadn’t heard Louis CK’s profound rant, everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy. The central character is a guy experiencing WiFi on one of the first flights to offer it. He’s online at 30,000 feet, among the first ever to watch YouTube videos while hurtling across the sky. Then […]
